Salma Hayek Says Donald Trump Tried to Trash Her Reputation After She Declined a Date
Salma Hayek is going in on exposing Donald Trump.
Appearing on "El Show del Mandril," a Spanish language show on Radio Centro 93.9 Los Ageles, on Friday (October 21), the actress opened up about a negative personal experience she once had with the GOP candidate.
Hayek claimed that when she first encountered Trump early on in her career in the '90s, the business mogul relentlessly tried to court her, despite rejecting his advances.
"When I met that man, I had a boyfriend, and he tried to become his friend to get my home telephone number," she revealed, according to Entertainment Tonight. "He got my number and he would call me to invite me out."
The actress also alleged that when she ultimately refused his invitation to date, Trump, or someone in his camp, called the tabloids to try to tarnish her reputation.
"When I told him I wouldn't go out with him even if I didn't have a boyfriend, [which he took as disrespectful], he called—well, he wouldn't say he called, but someone told the National Enquirer," Hayek shared.
"Someone told the National Enquirer...[and] said that he wouldn't go out with me because I was too short," she explained, adding, "Later, he called and left me a message, [saying] 'Can you believe this? Who would say this? I don’t want people to think this about you.' He thought that I would try to go out with him so people wouldn’t think that's why he wouldn’t go out with me."
Hayek is only one of a large number of Hollywood ladies who have stepped forward to share their disapproval of the Republican presidential candidate, with stars like Lady Gaga, Jamie Lee Curtis, Nicki Minaj and Elizabeth Banks all voicing their outrage over Trump's alleged behavior towards and vile remarks about women.
